Short snowshoe around the front part of the property with the pooches. The wind was too gusty to go into the forest. BazingaDog kept sneaking back onto the driveway to avoid the deep snow but AdventureDog was a rock star, leading the way with his ears plastered straight back for some reason. Maybe that's what the dogs do when they break trail in the northern Québec community he lived in until six years ago this week.
XC Skiing - Classic (Ungroomed) 1:09:40  4.48 km (3.9 kph) +100m
Deep snow ski with 'Bent and our neighbour Darcie. I described the conditions as "Antarctic" because the snow squalls were blowing so hard that we wanted to stay on fields or in areas with short, young trees, i.e. away from older trees with dead branches. I flirted with frostbite but it was all worth it when Darcie gave us fresh-baked challah to ski home with.
